Weekly Happenings: Art Basel


(Instagram: @gsylvain)

Art Basel was better than we ever could have ever hoped for: we sipped on the Broken Shaker’s new cocktails while being surrounded by limited edition prints, original art, and a hostelful of our friends. We thought we’d let our Instagram-loving guests wrap up the week. Thanks for the love!

We started with a splash, thanks to the folks at Hotel Chatter who helped us open the pool!

Then, Alec Monopoly got the Art-Basel vibe going by turning this ordinary, blank canvas into a masterpiece. (Instagram: @yuvialpert)

Fashion and music double-threats Timo Weiland set the tone for the weekend as honorees and DJs at our Art Basel Kick Back. (Instagram: @itsawildworld)

Curtis Kulig (of “LoveMe” fame) hung his custom underwear from our trees.

Then the party moved into the lobby as we escaped the rain and celebrated his work at the LoveMe + MeUndies bash. (Instagram: @itsawildworld)

At the Bow-B-Q the next day, we fought long and hard on the pin-pong battlefield.

Good thing we got some R & R because our Impossible Cool X Sonic Editions shindig got us hyped up all over again. (Instagram: @popgallery)

After that, Mia Moretti and Caitlin Moe‘s irresistible mixes at our Local Collaborating Artists event had us bustin’ moves. (Instagram: @bfa_nyc)

And when it was all over, we think Alan Eckstein of Timo Weiland summed it up best: fun for realz #byebye! (Instagram: @alaneckstein)
